Meet the Chinese Company That Really Wants to Be the Next Tesla These guys have been flying under my radar for some time. Great piece, linked above, on Road&Track about them. Their ace in the hole may be Tesla co-founder Martin Eberhard in the role of Chief Innovation Officer (They just bought his company and brought him on board). A lot of people liked Martin and were pretty pissed when Elon forced him out of the company. Now, we may get a chance to see what the man is capable of. Here's a link to the press release about the buying up of Eberhard's company, InEVit.
